Yup, thats a HEMMT allright.
I was in a patriot missile unit. It doesnt look like thats whats being towed though. Patriot missile launchers are easy to identify. They have a 15
Kilowat generator mounted towards the truck end of the trailer, and have 4 square canisters with the missiles in them. From what I can see, maybe
these are old Hawks?
The chalk on the side, as someone said earlier, is the convoy sderial ID number. We used to have to do them all the time in germany when we needed
local road clearance to travel.
Out LRPT, Radar, all 8 launchers, our wrecker, our fuel tank, and missile loader were all HEMMTS. Those suckers never got stuck anywhere, and were a
trip to ride in.
